Maths Tutorials - Higher Level Leaving Certificate 2023/2024

History of the SAI Maths Tutorials Project

In 2013, the Society launched a series of Maths Tutorials covering the Higher Level Leaving Certificate Maths Programme.  An invitation was issued to a small selection of schools to participate in these tutorials.

Since then, the Society has extended this invitation to more schools in the Dublin area and also launched the initiative in Cork for a period. The pandemic moved our programmes online, extending our reach beyond Dublin. For 2022/23 and onwards, the project moved back to in-person events to allow for greater interaction between students and tutors. Materials will however continue to be published online for any student wishing to avail of them outside of Dublin.

Academic Year 2023-2024

Location:

This year we are again running the tutorials in conjunction with Trinity Access Programme and all tutorials will take place within the Trinity University Campus (Arts Block). You can find the location of the Arts Block in Trinity here and here we have a short video to show students where to find it. Some weeks, due to excess student numbers the tutorials will be based over two lecture rooms as shown below. Signage will also be displayed each week guiding you to the tutorials.

Applications:

Application forms are required to be submitted to attend these tutorials and schools applying this year must be designated as DEIS. Please contact events@actuaries.ie if your school requires further details.

PLEASE NOTE: SAI Maths Tutorials are for 6th Level Students only.
